OOh boy, flame wars! I will always remember Steve Lawson's advice about learning all the capabilities of one piece of gear before adding another--let's see him do that now that he's using an Echoplex--and then let's give him the Loop IV upgrade! But in all seriousness, it is tough to do everything all at once--and if you know your instrument well, you can focus more on the other gear. Perhaps that is what you perceived. It is difficult to believe that David (just for one) is unmusical. OTOH, it's all about what you like!

Unfortunately I'll be out of town and can't check you out strutting your stuff @ open loop till 5/11. Let's see how f*cking talented you are after playing bass for 10 years. Bring a fretless bass Jaco. * David Beardsley * http://biink.com * http://mp3.com/davidbeardsley.
